There are five stages of grief.
Denial. Bargaining. Anger. Depression. Acceptance.
Losing the love of your life is one of the hardest things anyone would ever have to face. Especially when your life with them was just beginning. When tragedy strikes on what should be the happiest time of your life, how are you supposed to pick up the pieces of your life and move on without them?
Two strangers who happen to share a life changing event, come to find solace in each other to help deal with their pain. One of them feels the guilt of being the reason that a life was lost. The other guilty for making a last second choice.
Both of them, guilty that they survived.
But what happens when a bond that surfaces from tragedy brings these two strangers together? Finding comfort in each other as they both deal with the same pain, was never the plan. Can they look beyond the guilt of the past in order stop themselves dying along with their loved ones, but instead live and learn to love again?
What happens when losing your first love becomes the reason for meeting your one true love?

5 Stars!
This was a first read for my by Cassy Roop and I can promise you it won’t be my last.  This book had all the feelings that you expect with a sweet love story and so many more. The roller coaster that Cassy takes you on in this book is unmatched by many.

When we first start out, this couple is just starting out on their married life together and are on their Honeymoon. Ellie and Jeremy are looking forward to just getting to know each other and enjoy being married to each other. Jeremy surprises Ellie with a boat dinner. They are excited to be able to spend some time on the ocean with other couples that are celebrating just as they are. Once couple had just gotten married 2 days prior and one couple was on their celebrating their Anniversary. While they are out on the trip, the unthinkable happens and there is a freak accident.  No one was even prepared for what happened.

When Ellie and Evan wake up in the hospital, their lives are changed once again in a matter of a few days. They have had to go through the happiest times of their lives and now the most upsetting times of their lives in a matter of days from each other. Ellie and Evan knew of each other on the dinner cruise but they had not talked much on the dinner cruise. The ladies had talked and the men had talked but that was about it.  The grief process starts for both Ellie and Evan as soon as they realize what has happened to their spouses.

Ellie goes home and finds herself longing to be closer to what she considers where Jeremy is since his body was never found. Soon after returning home, Ellie feels the strong pull back to where they were on their Honeymoon so she can feel closer to Jeremy. Ellie pulls a pretty bold stunt and it just so happens that Evan is on the beach that same day and sees what happens with Ellie and takes off after her in fear that she is going to hurt herself. They have so much bitterness towards each other that they never thought they could help each other work through their problems.

Once Ellie and Evan get past their walls of blaming each other, the connection they feel for each other is one that they cannot ignore. I love how these two fell right into each other and are able to help each other get past their struggles they are dealing with. The way that Evan takes care of Ellie is so sweet to see.  I am so glad that this book had a HEA for these two since it started out so sad for them. I love the way that Cassy made you feel so close to the characters and made it to where you could relate to the characters so easily. Such a great read. Just have your tissues read!!
